Could be good point, however, in many cases you'll end up with tcp over tcp
which isnt a good idea. To point out one issue with that look here:

To come back on ssh, two other advantadges (forgive my worse English) are
1) RSA-based host authentication. 
2) Instead of giving in a username you can also use RSA based authentication
with a passphrase. It's shortly explained in ssh(1) (man 1 ssh).

In these days of the internet it's more like: RIP telnet :)
But ..... using ipsec and telnet isnt that bad.
